Acadia National Park Quarter Bags and Rolls

The United States Mint will begin sales of the Acadia National Park Quarter numismatic bags and rolls starting today June 11, 2012 at 12:00 Noon ET. This will be the thirteenth release of the America the Beautiful Quarters Program.

The reverse design of the coin features a view of the Bass Harbor Head Light House and Acadia’s coastline. This image incorporates many of the representative elements of the park, including the coastline, light house, pine trees, and the ocean. This is the design that had been recommended by both the CFA and CCAC.

The US Mint will offer 100-coin bags of circulating quality Acadia National Park Quarters from either the Philadelphia or Denver Mint. The canvas bags are sewn shut and include an indication of the year, design, state abbreviation, mint mark, and face value. Each bag is priced at $34.95.

Two roll sets containing one 40-coin roll from the Philadelphia and Denver Mint will also be available. The rolls feature special numismatic wrapping that includes the design, state abbreviation, mint mark, and face value. Each two roll set is priced at $32.95.

The Acadia National Park Quarter bags and rolls are expected to remain available for sale for approximately one year from the release date. At an unannounced future date, bags and rolls of circulating quality Acadia Quarters with the “S” mint mark are also expected to be released.

To coincide with today’s release, it is expected that sales of the eighth release of the America the Beautiful Quarters Program featuring Olympic National Park will conclude. The US Mint has been timing the conclusion of sales with the start of sales for the coin one year ahead in the release schedule.

    OFF TOPIC,
    Uber coins are taking preorders for the 2012 Kangaroo HR.
    for $99.99 and $3.33 for s@h. Hope this helps everyone.
    I do not care for these quarters/bags and will stick to my HR’s
    and my Morgans. This can always change for that special set that comes out.

    Sam,
    I just checked again. It comes right up on the home page.
    What are you looking at ? That’s Uber coins in your search box.
    Please try it again. Their are several uber coin sites that come up
    when you click the search box. They most likely have a couple hundred
    in stock. You can order more than one.

    Yes, I misunderstood. I think they are just getting started. I id not like
    that they charged my card so soon. Isn’t this illegal ? Coins don’t ship until
    2/3 week of July.(?).

    I’m thinking of buying a wheel barrow…
    With all the dollars and euros being printed, my wallet is quickly becoming obsolete.

    Today, at the grocery store, they were asking $5.00 for four ears of corn.
    Looks like I will be eating more potatoes than corn for a while.

    Thanks George

    W, let me know after you buy it. i may need to borrow it from you, since i grow vegetable in my backyard.

    Really nice elegant design, the Acadia quarter, and so nice to read something other than the ballyhoo’ed SF Eagle sets for a change.

  7. charles says

    dang, that sounds very high for corn…in the southeast, we get 3, sometimes 4 ears for $1.00

    Zaz,
    How about this, an Acadia 5 ounce with a CC mint mark, minted with a silver outer-core and a palladium center, topped off with it being struck in HR, which then would make it the size of 2 Morgans ? Did I mention that the present mint director has to take an extended vacation for this to materialize…
    Seriously, I think that our guys and congressional leaders that are all involved in the design of new coins, from the start to the end product(all the input that is brought up), do not want to get involved with colorized coins and may have something to that our nation is above this and won’t embarrass ourselves. Just a thought.

    @Zaz – I agree, i am ASE burned out. While i do appreciate PM coins, i also appreciate good designs, and i like the Acadia design. I still rarely find an ATB quarter in pocket change, but i did get a PR terrirtory, and a Hot Springs quarter both last week, i guess i am a geek because i got excited to find two in one week!

    @Dave – sorry,no carson city mint mark on either one. 🙂

    I have a question, I might be missing some thing here. Why are the coins from 2011 are sold at 49.95 for 100 coins and where as 2012 sold at 34.95?

  11. says

    Anil,

    This is because they announced a price reduction for many clad coins which started in 2012. However, for whatever reason, they chose not to cut prices on roll that had already been released. It seems strange to me too.

  12. Brad says

    It looks like the Mint’s new habit of leaving old products on sale even after new products go on sale has spread to the ATB quarters as well. I noticed that the Olympic rolls and bags are still for sale. What gives with that?

    I’ll bet the practice of removing the prior year First Spouses when the corresponding coin for the current year goes on sale is out the window now, too. They’ll leave them for sale until however many they struck are sold, thus ruining the lower-mintage scenario. Lucy Hayes and Lucretia Garfield would have been lucky to sell 2,500 and 2,300 Uncs respectively under the old method! Now they’ll probably remain for sale until all 2,900 (probable mintage figure) are sold!
